Today is "International Sloth Day"

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

This morning I came home from swimming at my local health club, had a little breakfast, and have done nothing really productive since.  Imagine my relief at learning today (October 20th) is International Sloth Day!  I needed an excuse.  Here's a couple links to websites about this important day!

A great Sunday when you don't have to worry about anything for at least a few hours. Enjoy your day.

Michael Jacobs - I certainly didn't seem to need an excuse when I came home from swimming and found myself with no motivation and energy.  But, I was glad to grasp on International Sloth Day to justify it.

Bob Crane - Yes, it was nice to have a "special" day to remind us that slothieness is OK. 

Rose Mary Justice - It sure was! 

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® - International Sloth Day gave a real "Sieze the Day" opportunity.

Marte Cliff - You are not the only one who has told me that.  Perhaps, it's the change in seasons.  My body seems really eager to go into hibernation!

Barbara Todaro - I couldn't even imagine you being slothy! 

Nina Hollander - Be sure to put it on the calendar for next year, so you don't miss out! 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - I seem to have a lot more energy this morning.  I guess my body simply needed the day off!

I didn't realize you were such a big fan of sloths, but now I know, haha.  I am a day late to this post, so I missed out on celebrating international sloth day.

I love sloths! I bought a darling stuffed one for my granddaughter and loved it so much I got one for myself. It sat on my bed and we ended up naming it Kitty because everytime someone passed by they thought there was a cat on my bed. It's nice to be able to have sloth days.

Myrl I just saw a sloth on some TV show not to long ago - really cool animals.  And hey -- it's good to have a sloth day every once in awhile!  I call them PJ days!

Hi Myrl, I am glad you reminded us about this slow-paced creature with a constant smile. I should add it next to my favorite hedgehog. :) They'll make me good company on busy days.

Hi Myrl:

I've never heard of this day...which I missed...but perhaps I actually being slothful that day and didn't realize it.

I missed Sloth Day but enjoyed the two links. Perhaps Physicians should have that photo of the Sloth with the description and explanation about metabolism in their office while patients wait to have something to read as a motivator to exercise and get moving! 

Sloths are really fascinating creatures. I enjoyed your post very much!
